教學目的 Students will be able to compare and contrast several methods of food production & consumption
教學內容 Ask students:  Do you know where your food comes from? (i.e. where and how and by whom it is grown?)  What kinds of things do you consider when choosing food? (i.e. nutrition, convenience, etc.)  Do you think it is important to know where & how your food was produced? Why or why not? One of the great things about a school garden is that by growing food ourselves, we get to experience the process of food production. Students and young people all over the country who are growing school and community gardens are becoming curious about food production from the garden to the grocery store! Let’s explore. Show one or both of the following movie trailers (preview for appropriateness for your students and objectives): What’s on Your Plate? http://www.whatsonyourplateproject.org/about/watch Nourish http://www.nourishlife.org/videos/nourish-trailer/ Several short film clips are available at http://www.nourishlife.org/videos-all/ if you want to provide additional “food for thought” on some of the topics introduced in these trailers. After viewing the clips, engage your class in a discussion:  What are some questions the students in this film are asking?  What are your questions about food?  How do you think we might find out more? There are dozens of books and films about food production & consumption in the United States. A web search on any one food-related topic will yield a variety of different, and often conflicting, perspectives. Many of these topics are highly debated and controversial. Because of this, it is very important to explore all viewpoints to help us think critically about these topics so that we may make informed choices about how we grow, purchase, and consume our food. Ask students:  Why do you think so many people are interested in exploring food production and consumption?  What are some of the topics we could explore related to food production and consumption? (Locally grown vs. non-locally grown foods, organic vs. non-organic, processed vs. whole foods, fresh vs. packaged, fast food vs. slow food, nutrition, cost of production & transportation of food, fair trade, food safety, food deserts, genetically modified seeds, food additives, etc.) Ask the class to choose their top 4-5 topics and divide students into small groups to research each topic. Encourage students to find as many different perspectives on each topic as they can. If time and resources allow, students may extend their research to the field by conducting interviews with local food producers and markets. Research may address:  What information is widely available on your topic?  What information is more difficult to find?  What/who are the sources of the information you found on this topic?  Did all sources agree on this topic, or did you find conflicting viewpoints? Why or why not?  What did you think/feel about this issue before your research?  Has your perspective changed, been strengthened, or stayed the same as a result of your research?
